interactive installation, Park Hotel Waldhaus Flims, Switzerland, 2006
The Installation investigates the Rhäto-Romanic language, its five idioms and the literary language Rumantsch Grischun. An old book, found on a dusty shelf, is encoded from scratch and transformed into a modern video player. Turn over pages and short and to-the-point statements appear on the monitor screen, embedded with profound and illustrative phrases. They’re the direct and genuine observations from the Romans themselves about the status and significance of the fourth official language in their lives.
